A nice place to stay in NYC”
The hostel is pretty close to Manhattan - take a subway ride for about 20 mins and you’ll be there. The place is clean and comfortable which you can have a decent sleep. What’s more, their staffs are really nice that you can have some chats with.

Wonderful time”
Was looking for a easy location to get around town with ease. Was in NYC for the Jamiroquai concert and celebrate my birthday weekend. I have to say your place did not disappoint. I plan to come to New York again and you will have my business again. I will highly recommend the Local Hostel.

Yes, my apartment burned down in a fire in Pennsylvania, still waiting for repairs to be made, so I am doing my best to stay in a variety of lodging. This is excellent, near the subway, food stores, could not want anything better in my circumstance.

Good value”
Warning, no lift. Shower was draining really poorly but once informed, was fixed by the time i returned that night. Realised my bunk didn’t have a book light and they said they’d give me one the next day but it was already too late. Otherwise decent place, nice views from the rooftop and sufficient space to put your things, convenient location and was okay walking back on my own at night.

excellent for budget travelers”
Comfort, interior, location
I've been to another hostel in Washington DC but Local Hostel is so much better. The interior is comparable to a boutique hotel. I like they separated the shower from the toilet and I never had bathroom fight with my room mates. The concept of partitioning the corridor and the room is great, I can do my washing up and packing without waking up my other room mates. The location is good. It is in an industrial area, I was worried about the safety but it seems alright for a solo female traveler to return past 12am, though it is not encouraged.

Very clean hostel”
Great staff, Clean hostel and good guide books exist in the hostel
The hostel has a great facilities and it is totally different from other hostels in term of cleanless and tidness. This hostel is well maintained and has a great friendly atmosphere. The hostel is very close to the metro station which is around 5 mins on foot and it has an easy aaccess to the main areas in NYC. The price is a bit expensive compared to other hostels but this is NY so you need to expect this kind of amount. I recommend staying in this hostel for a low budget travellers.

Convenient Location but small room”
One metro stop away from manhatten which is convenient, and safe at night even though it’s quiet. The only thing was the room that I was staying had issues with the toilet bowl and it doesn’t flush all the time. Which kinda means any big business has to be taken outside. Room is small with limited space to open up luggages.

A mix of feelings”
The hostel is well located, and staff is friendly - they also hand you a voucher to redeem for free beer, wine, or coffee. However, the guy who stayed at the top bunk ruined my stay. He was drunk in the first night, and in the other nights he went in and out of his bed making a lot of noise - saw himself walking around the room and staring at the other travelers and me while we were sleeping. I asked the reception to switch rooms in the first night, but they said they were unable to do so as they had to reconvert a female bedroom into a mixed room to accommodate our stay at the hostel. I don't blame on management for this, but it was one of the worst experiences I've ever had in a hostel.

Good value”
Good location, only 1-2 stops by subway to get to Manhattan. Very nice views from the rooftop. Plenty of comunal areas. The only thing I didn't like much was the bar area at night, the music was a bit too loud, felt almost like a club. Everything else just fine if you know you are actually going to a hostel (bunks, shared bathrooms, etc). The staff were helpful every time I asked them for something. Very inexpensive for NYC. Would gladly repeat as a solo traveler.

Clean, great C/P and good location. But never use your own towel, even they said they won't take away if you hang it on your own hook. No, they took away and can't bring it back. Very awful experience. Except that, everything is good.

Not a bad choice”
The staff is really friendly and always ready for your questions! The location is also very nice and very close to the metro station. However, the facilities are not so convenient actually. The bed is loose and you can easily disturb the others. The lobby is a little bit noisy because it’s just next to the bar. Consider the factors!

Not too far from the court sq subway maybe 8 mins walking distance. They have welcome drink (alcohol or coffee type) depends on how old you are. Clean! Shower and toilet are separated, small, but ok and it's inside the room. Their staff are so kind and helpful. :)
